Lancaster, PA Trenchless Technology
Trenchless technologies are taking over the sewer and plumbing industry. These processes are no-dig solutions that have allowed professionals across the country to forego the traditional excavation processes to reach the exterior of their pipes. Now, select companies are upgrading their equipment and offer the technologies in every service small or large. From inspections to cleanings and total sewer replacements, trenchless technologies can handle the job. Pipeshark is a proud user of the trenchless technologies, which are environmentally friendly, cost effective, and a big time-saver.
Sewer camera inspections are the best way to know the condition of your pipes or to target an issue within them. Using a high-definition camera attached to a flexible drain snake, technicians push the hose through the entire system. The camera captures photos and videos along the way which are clear enough to show the overall condition of the pipes and allow our professionals to determine if a replacement is needed, if a cleaning is needed, how often pipes should be cleaned, if there are any repairs necessary, and where exactly the repairs need to be made. Our technicians can target the exact problem areas and come up with the best course of action.
Sewer cleanings are another trenchless technology that allows us to maintain your pipes and treat them. A great form of trenchless cleaning is our hydro jetting option. This option uses water pressure that blasts out of the multi-directional nozzle at speeds of 4000 PSI, slicing through tree roots and layers of grime and buildup like a knife and washing it down the drains. This allows the pipes to be be protected from rusting and breaking by removing the toxins that lie within the residue that builds up over time.
Replacements are the largest investment in sewer services. Thankfully, trenchless technologies have drastically decreased the amount of issues that used to come along with this process. There is no longer the need directly access the outside of the pipes and remove them to place in new pipe. Things are able to be done all internally while either leaving the old pipe in place or removing and replacing it by way of bursting.
Sewer lining involves depositing an epoxy lining that is durable enough to form a new pipe when the process is done. After inspections and cleanings, the felt tube coated in the liner is pushed through the existing pipes. Once in place, it expands and molds to the existing pipes, forming to their interior. The felt tube is then removed and the epoxy hardens in place, forming a new pipe within the older pipes.
Trenchless technologies allow for lower prices due to the decrease in the manpower needed during certain tasks that used to require direct access to the pipes. The technologies are easier, completed faster, and the results are superior to those of traditional methods.
